I am a PhD student in the Global Environmental Health group at the School of Public Health under the supervision of Majid Ezzati, James Bennett, Seth Flaxman and Mireille Toledano. I am supported by the Imperial College President's scholarship.

As part of the Pathways to Equitable Healthy Cities collaboration, my research looks at small-area trends in mortality in London and England using both Bayesian parametric and nonparametric models. I am interested in how environmental and economic deprivation impact different subgroups of the population.

I previously read theoretical physics, also at Imperial College, writing my thesis on the dynamics of hurricanes.
